Today is the 30th anniverssary of Iraq’s Saddam invasion of #Kuwait.
Mubarak’s #Egypt that was very friendly to Saddam Hussein, took a moral stance and stood against the invasion.
But that is not the end of the story—> thread 👇👇
First, it is important to understand why many in Egypt, not just Mubarak regime, were fond of Saddam. Because Iraq at his tenure, welcomed Egyptians and treated them as fellow citizens with equal rights 1/
During Saddam tenure, any Egyptian citizen could enter #Iraq without a passport; just an ID card, and allowed to work and earn good income. Many Egyptians from rural areas went to Iraq in hunted of thousands 2/

Important thread with facts that will help us understand Joe Biden’s support for Muslim Brotherhood (#MB) political agent @soltanlife. It all goes back to President Obama’s Mideast strategy & #Egypt policy with the embrace of the Brotherhood according to PSD-11 & PPD-13. 1/
The 2011 upheaval in #Egypt initiated a shift in U.S. strategy from support for Mubarak to intensive engagement with the Islamist opposition groups. This change in U.S. strategy derived out of Presidential Study Directive (#PSD)-11 issued by president Obama in August 2010. 2/
The comprehensive policy review of U.S. strategy in #MENA region by the Obama administration led to the conclusion & acceptance of #MB as a legitimate, peaceful & moderate Islamist political opposition in #Egypt with whom they could work. @brhodes said this to me in West wing. 3/

#Egypt- video purportedly showing large-scale attack on checkpoint in vicinity of Bir al-Abd, North #Sinai, including a very large explosion that may be an SVBIED
#Egypt- video from another angle (and closer) of the large-scale #ISIS attack & explosion (possibly SVBIED) on Rabia checkpoint near Bir al-Abd, North #Sinai
#Egypt-another video of the large-scale #ISIS attack on Rabia checkpoint near Bir al-Abd, North #Sinai, showing militants on motorcycles (common) placing IEDs before retreating to hit first responders/delay pursuit efforts

This seemingly was a large,well-planned & complex attack

The backdrop to the feminist revolution in #Egypt: The regime is itself predatory.

President Sisi was head of military intelligence when the military subjected female protestors to “virginity tests.” Women who expose sexual assault/harassment are jailed, not their predators.
In recent weeks, at least 2 young women who have massive followings on TikTok and a dancer were arrested and charged with “inciting debauchery and violating family values.” For social media posts.

It’s instructive how patriarchy always looks for ways to punish and silence women.

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

I’ve been so triggered tonight and I have to get it off my chest & more importantly, you must understand why in #Egypt #women are not believed & what it means. #VAW #thread #ABZ #MeToo #Egypt 1/10
Let’s talk about the believability of women. It is indoctrinated into our culture & even encoded in our genes, that women are liars or that they exaggerate or that they tell half truths.
2/10
I’m someone who was sexually abused by a relative as a child & when I told my father he immediately said I was lying. He actually took the side of the perpetrator. I cannot begin to describe to you the pain this has caused me for years until today and will continue to do so

Mother of all battles in #Libya is close.

Commenting on the visit of Turkish Defense Minister #HulusiAkar and his chief of staff to the #Tripoli Libya, the #Egypt military expert Major General Samir Ragheb said that the matter suggests that the battle in #Sirte is approaching.
Τhe mobility of Turkish C130 aircraft at airports controlled by the Tripoli regime, the installation of missile systems and radar, the transport of thousands of mercenaries, building military bases, foretell that it is expected a huge regional conflict.

So @_AfricanUnion negotiations have NOT been fruitful. #Egypt & #Sudan will NOT jeopardize the lives of millions & will never allow for the Turkish Ilısu Dam scenario to reoccur. #UN Security Council role will be crucial, but will it adopt an arbitrary role? 1/
#Ethiopia’s unilateral filling of #GERD without an agreement is a serious violation to its international legal obligations. #Sudan & #Egypt would interpret it as an act of war, making any diplomatic solution even harder to reach & comprehensive agreement more complicated. 2/
According to UN Charter Article 51, #Sudan & #Egypt will have the legitimate right of self-defence to safeguard the lives of millions of people. This is of course if #Ethiopia decides to fill #GERD without an agreement & violate its international legal obligations. 3/

Truly fascinating story linking #tech & #geopolitics, and involving #Gulf. #Google sponsors new undersea fiber optic cable connecting #Europe & #Asia, specifically #Italy & #India, via the #ArabianPeninsula. Should cut costs by 50% & really increase efficiency. Few details 👇 1/
The cable will be split in 2. Blue goes from #Italy to #Jordan (Aqaba) via #Israel and is done w/Telecom Italia. Raman goes from #India to Aqaba via #Oman & #SaudiArabia and done w/Omantel. The split is due to Saudi opposition of direct link to Israel (normalization, much?). 2/
The Blue-Raman cable will be the first connecting #Europe & #Asia to bypass #Egypt. All other cables do and in fact Egypt charges massively for access while also being the "biggest single-point-of-failure in the entire world." 3/

@MouradTeyeb Rwanda case: French history of “complicity” in Africa from Mitterrand>Macron: “#France was part of the planning, part of the conception & part of the execution of the genocide”

Another case of #French complicity is #Haftar in #Tripoli?
